Commonwealth Scholarship For Students of Developing Countries
Commonwealth Scholarships for students from developing Commonwealth countries are offered for Master's, PhD, and split-site (PhD) study in the UK. These scholarships are funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID).
There is a nominating agency for Commonwealth Scholarships in each Commonwealth country. In addition, universities and university bodies in a number of developing Commonwealth countries are invited to nominate candidates to the CSC. Each year, the CSC invites each nominating agency/university/university body to forward a specific number of nominations. Each nominating agency/university/university body is responsible for its own selection process, and in most cases they will set their own closing date, which will be before the CSC's deadline for nominations (21 December 2012).
Approximately 300 scholarships are awarded each year. The CSC invites around three times more nominations than scholarships available - therefore, nominated candidates are not guaranteed to get a scholarship. There are no quotas for scholarships for any individual country. Candidates nominated by national nominating agencies are in competition with those nominated by universities/university bodies, and the same standards will be applied to applications made through either channel.
You can apply for a Commonwealth Scholarship for the following levels of study: Master's (from 2013, the CSC funds one-year Master's courses only), PhD & Split-site, where the CSC supports one year's study at a UK university as part of a PhD being undertaken in your home country.
All subject areas are eligible, although the CSC's selection criteria give priority to applications that demonstrate strong relevance to development.
You are requested to apply for a course of study at a UK university with which the CSC has a part funding agreement.
All applications must be made through your nominating agency (or university/university body, if applicable) in your home country. You must check with them in the first instance for specific advice on how to make an application and for their own closing date. The CSC cannot accept any applications direct from candidates.
The CSC expects all Commonwealth Scholarship candidates to be nominated by an approved nominating agency/university/university body, and to have completed an application form using our Electronic Application System (EAS).
The EAS will close to applicants on 7 December 2012 and no further applications can be made after that date. The CSC will not accept any applications which are not submitted via the EAS to the nominating agency/university/university body in the candidate's home country.
